'Tree of Life' Memorial Mural

The 'Tree of Life' was created to honor the beloved children of the HSC Pediatric Center in Washington, DC. The handmade tile leaves on the Tree of Life are embedded with the names of children whose lives are remembered. The row of rainbow children in front of the tree are holding their hands out for others who have gone before them, and to those who will need a guiding hand in times to come. The butterflies, flowers, leaves, and the cat, bird, baby and sun are all handmade ceramic tiles. The grass, tree and sky are made from broken commercial tiles. The mirrored pieces that twinkle throughout the mural allow viewers to reflect upon themselves, as they become an integral part of the mural, timeless memories, and the landscape of the beautiful and reverent butterfly garden. | Scale: 9' w x 7' h
